TLTT presents John Metcalfe & Daniel Bachman

The Last Train Track

The Last Train Track is an immersive night of music, visuals and storytelling, emulating a trip on the last train home, as you slip in and out between waking moments and lucid dreams. All aboard…

The Lantern’s Sunday night series continues with its third instalment featuring composer, arranger and producer John Metcalfe, and master guitarist Daniel Bachman. For The Last Train Track, Metcalfe performs from his solo album The Appearance of Colour, described as “effervescent, divinely beautiful, packed with Eno-esque passages of ambience and glistening guitar lines worthy of Vini Reilly” by Clash magazine, while The 405 says it strikes  “a perfect balance between classical music, ambient, and IDM”.

In contrast, Daniel Bachman is a 6-string and lap steel guitar player from Virginia. Bachman grew up steeped in the traditional music of the Commonwealth, drawing from and expanding on it in his own fingerstyle guitar albums. His 2015 album River, a set of seven unaccompanied guitar instrumentals, “reads like a private love letter to an old home, written and sent from a new one,” (Pitchfork).

The night is completed by the stunning live visuals and soundtrack from Rob Dunstone and Jason Baker. Spoken Tales From Sean Duffy.

As the last train rolls in, there’s a small time to say your goodbyes, your weary head is nearing the pillow and strange tales turn to ghostly dreams: The Last Train Track provides the perfect bedtime story to a soundtrack of warm electronica, trains, and folk like fables.
